Live Cultures

Live cultures, also known as probiotics, are friendly bacteria that feed the microbiome in your gut. Microbiome is responsible for the stomach-to-brain connection and balances multiple hormones. These include dopamine and serotonin (happy hormones), and melatonin (a sleep hormone). 


When the microbiome doesn’t have enough live cultures, your digestive system can’t function correctly. You may struggle with gas, bloating, brain fog, tiredness and mental health issues.


Health benefits of live cultures


You naturally source live cultures through fermented foods such as tempeh, kombucha and sauerkraut. You can’t store probiotics but have to replenish them every day. So, getting enough can prove tricky, which is where a supplement comes in handy. Here are a few of the top benefits of taking a live culture supplement:


Strengthens gut health


Your gut is full of living bacteria called microbiome. Live cultures (or probiotics) feed your gut bacteria for a healthy digestive system. That means no more bloating, cramping, excess gas, diarrhoea or constipation. 


Boosts your immune system


Live cultures strengthen immunity cells to defend your body against harmful bacteria that cause illness.


Increases sleep quality


The body releases the sleep hormone melatonin to help you drift off every night, and the gut plays a massive role in regulating melatonin production. Probiotics balance your gut bacteria, producing the right amount of sleepiness in healthy doses.


Decreases stress


Stress triggers the release of the hormone cortisol, which can cause a racing heart, hair loss, mood swings and impact sleep quality and heart health. Live cultures decrease the production of cortisol by increasing dopamine and serotonin (your happy hormones), lowering stress levels.


Contributes to glowing skin


Sugar and fast food can kill specific parts of your microbiome and cause gut inflammation. This travels to your skin, triggering acne and redness and compromising your skin barrier. Live cultures rebalance the microbiome, soothing inflammation and enhancing skin health.
